May 4th has become the perfect day for announcing Star Wars products, news and even guests for Celebration VI. So it should come as no surprise that USAToday.com reveals to us that author John Jackson Miller has a new comic series coming out.
Brian Truitt of USA Today writes:
Writer John Jackson Miller is just one of many guys who digs that galaxy far, far away, and he's going way, way back in it for his new five-issue Dark Horse Comics series Star Wars: The Lost Tribe of the Sith, launching Aug. 8.
The comic removes three aspects that are some of the most essential of the Star Wars films — technology, starships and Jedi knights — and focuses on the Tribe, an ancient group of Sith believers stranded on a remote planet for 5,000 years. (The Sith, by the way, tap into the dark side of the Force.)
The Lost Tribe of the Sith project began three years ago with the Fate of the Jedi novel series, which found this group escaping their prison in the time of Star Wars hero Luke Skywalker and threatening the galaxy.
